Calamity

Empty, alone and isolated,
Robbed of all hope.
So much strength wasted,
Putting in effort to cope.

Day comes after day,
Just as bad, or worse.
How big the long for joy,
How painful the thirst.

Clothed in depression,
Like wearing the stress.
Question after question,
ďHow much longer the test?Ē

Even doubting God,
Creator of the universe.
Can He really heal?
Can He kill this curse?

All hopes lost forever,
Joyís a thing of the past.
Spiritís barely breathing,
Living only just.

Thatís our mentality,
In our negative mind.
Falling in calamity,
Like weíre lost, and canít be found.

Weíre quick to doubt,
Quick to stop life.
So easily give up,
When we hit some strife.

Like the Israelites,
Rescued from slavery.
Crossing the red sea,
Then turning to idolatry.

We doubt God quick,
We lose hold of Him.
Giving faith a flick,
As soon as the lights dim.

But thereís still hope,
Light in the darkness.
Just focus for the end,
Prayer is your harness.

Focus on the Christ,
Remember the blessings.
Always think positive,
And donít stop pressing.

God is always faithful,
Even if we donít see.
Jesus gave it all,
So God will never flee.

Falling seven times,
Godly people fall.
But getting up the eighth,
Those staying faithful.

God never lets go,
It is us who do.
But think positive,
Godís next to you.
